Art and the artists, the tool and the latter - the user, represent a depth of human creativity. Artists capture the past and present. They also predict the future. No other place exemplifies this as the Louvre Paris, a museum known the world over as the largest.

A first time visitor to Paris can not miss the majestically and imposing Arc de Triomphe in the centre of Etoile.

The Arc de Triomphe was eventually built to replace the arch that was that was initially built at the place de Carrousel, because it did not have the imposing qualities Napoleon envisioned. The 164 foot Arc de Triomphe construction work took 30 years and was completed under Louis Phillippe because Napoleon was defeated and the power shifted hands. But, in order to honour Napoleon who happened to be the original initiator, his body was made to pass under the arch while on the way to its final resting place.

Below is a list (most of these are completely free and if there is a cost, I noted it):
